  • Rub the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add the egg and mix in enough cold water to bind the pastry together. Cover with cling film and rest until required.
  • Roll out the pastry and use it to line a 9 inch quiche dish or a square equivalent. place the in the fridge to set.
  • Meanwhile prepare the filling.
  • Fry the leeks and curly kale in a little oil for 2 minutes or until they are just softened, season with some salt and pepper.

  • Mix the eggs and milk together and add some seasoning, then pour over the top of the flan.
  • Sprinkle with the grated cheese and sliced brie and bake on the base of the baking oven in the oven for 30-35 minutes. if you are in a rush you can bake the quiche in the roasting oven but keep an eye out to ensure it doesn't burn the base.
